Entropy

This is the law,
the rule of nature eternal,
the force for which we name
and cite maxims today,
not truth but approximate,
surmised through human brains–

We toil and wear our fingers down
precisely to their nubs,
yet the fossil record’s bust,
and for all our endeavors luck
we barely loosed the top.

Oh sure, we’ve discovered
and dug with all our might,
but time will have her way
and with truth there is a maxim:
everything is going to decay.
